CloudOps is excited to host the first Apache CloudStack™ Collab conference of 2016 on June 1-3 2016 in beautiful Montreal, Canada.

Join Us

This conference is aimed at developers, operators and users to discuss and evolve the open source software project, its functionality and real world operability. Part talks, part workshops, part hackathon, this event will present a great opportunity for attendees and sponsors alike.

The hackathon will have a significant focus on Continuous Integration, testing and working through questions around GitHub pull requests, however all participation is welcome!

Montreal is active and beautiful at this time of year, so we recommend planning an extra day to take advantage of this amazing city.
